IN BAD SPILL
Occupants of Automobile Thrown Out When Machine Skids.
Kathryn, N. D., Dec. 15.—Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Michelson and little daughter were going to Fingal by auto, and when just beyond the railroad crossing west of Nome the machine became suddenly uncontrollable and shied to one side running up against a telephone pole with such force that it threw the occupants out the front of the rig.
Mrs. Mickelsen was thrown out on her face against the hard frozen ground and received a severe bruise and violent shock, so much so that she did not recover consciousness for a long time. Gladys escaped with a slight injury on one of her knees.
